KUALA LUMPUR (May 3): Candy manufacturer Khee San Bhd announced today that its annual report for financial year ended Dec 31, 2018 will be released to shareholders and Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd (Bursa Securities) on Wednesday (May 8) because external auditors are in the midst of finalising the company's annual audited financial statements.
"The board of directors of Khee San wishes to inform that the external auditors are in the midst of finalising the annual audited financial statements for the financial period ended 31 December 2018 which will be tabled at the board of directors’ meeting to be held on 6 May 2019. The annual report 2018 will be released to Bursa Securities and the shareholders on 8 May 2019," Khee San said.
